Gay friendly

Avignon, place de l'horlogeThe Festival d'Avignon hosts a number of plays and shows exploring the gay and transvestite scene. Outrageous costumes are so common here during the festival that drag queens walking down the street in the middle of the afternoon are just part of the normal fun!
La programmation du Festival d'Avignon accueille bien sûr des spectacles travestis en tous genres. Aucun maquillage, aucun costume ne sont trop outranciers pour se ballader en ville dans la chaleur de l'après-midi - un régal de photographe !
Karen fait la belle tous les jours à 12h30 salle Laurette, rue Joseph Vernet.
Deux pièces de Jean-Luc Lagarce sont jouées cette année : Le Bain suivi de C'était Hier à 11h au Vieux Balancier et l'Apprentissage au théatre de la Luna à 20h.

Je que j'aime dans la première photo, c'est la ressemblance du personnage de gauche avec celui de la publicité Giorgio Armani au second plan... !

I had some friends who had a condo on a street where, from the comfort of their living room, they could look out the window and enjoy this type of scene walking past their place evey Saturday night.

MAGNIFIQUE photo portrait Nathalie, Quel fun de porter ces costumes.

Moi je trouve que la mode est ennuyeux- trop de règle-et le théatre donne la liberté à la mode.

So many beautiful people. I wish I were as brave as you to ask for portraits.

How fun! You've really been capturing the spirit of the festival. I'm thoroughly enjoying this series of photos. Avignon seems like such a colorful, lively, and upbeat place to be these days, despite the heat. Thank you, Nathalie.

Great photos here. The Stockholm equivalent to this starts in a weeks time. All major political leaders will attend except for the religions loony.
